The health promotion and health communication unit of the
All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) is to conduct a pre-marriage
course from July 29 and July 30.
The course aims to teach young people how to have happy
marriages because marital discord is on the rise in that age group. "This is
the motivation for the course. This course aims at helping the youth in
preparing physically, socially and emotionally for a married life in a better
way," said Bir Singh, professor of community medicine and convener of the
The course will also educate would-be couples about sexually
transmitted diseases as well as to make adjustments in married life. The course
will initially have 30 participants.
